It’s been nearly a decade since North Iowa last beat Bishop Garrigan, that last win came in May of 2012.

Meinders says good pitcher, timely scoring, and great defense was the key in the win.

North Iowa has three seniors on the team and all three contributed last night.

On the softball side, the Bison ran into a buzz-saw of a ranked Bishop Garrigan squad. The Golden Bears won 13-1 in 5 innings.

First year head coach Lauren Hein says seniors Mackenzy Jensvold and Hannah Main have been large contributors for the Bison.
